That's a pretty damn good question :-)

I've made the choice between dwww and doc-central several years
ago. _IIRC_ , back then dwww was missing decent browsing of the doc-base
sections which is my main access path to documentation; more generally,
I liked dwww more back then.  FWIW I've just re-looked at dwww after
your prod, and it seems that it has improved a lot over time.

If the point of yours, beside curiosity, was also to phase out
doc-central in favor of dwww, that might be an option, but then
agreement should be sought between the two packages maintainer and a bit
of smooth upgrade path should be provided.
